The Landscape as a direct experience where the work on the motif constitutes one of the essential points of this approach. If copying a two-dimensional surface in two dimensions does not present any difficulty, choosing to draw on the pattern and therefore to go from three to two dimensions is on the other hand much more complicated.

Therefore, I will propose during this course to address and resolve the difficulties inherent in the passage between these two dimensions because to draw a landscape you have to make a number of decisions: determine its frame, stylize or interpret.

It is also necessary to perceive the atmospheric perspective, the ratios of magnitudes, the values of shadows and light, etc.

But more important than anything, we must LOVE what we see, familiarize ourselves with its subject for as long as necessary, so that it becomes in our eyes like a long-time friend. The objective of this course will also be to develop in the participant his own artistic grammar, to target the sensitivities of each for such or such modes of graphic expression.

Documentation will be made available to participants on artists who have treated landscape from Hubert Van Eyck to David Hockney.
